Sam Morgan (1906-91)

6 May 2012: I've only just noticed that there is an obituary for Sam Morgan on Tony Hare's website. An excellent read: I can add an extra few snippets of info. Sam was born Samuel Morgan (no middle name) on 25 September 1906 in Corstorphine, Edinburgh, Scotland (and there was me thinking he was Welsh like so many other RGS masters! Although his accent was standard English, of course). He died on 9 May 1991 in Stoke Mandeville Hospital, aged 84, having retired from the RGS in 1973 after 43 years' service (apart from an absence on war service as an officer in the ATC - does this stand for Air Training Corps? Anyone know?). His wife's maiden name was Maude Louise Bennett (born 1912) and I think she was normally known as Louise. They were married in High Wycombe in 1954.
